旧的利口酒和干邑工厂以及前面的宏伟花园在伊斯坦布尔的物质和社会记忆中具有重要作用；花园是Mecidiyekoy区城市肌理的一个关键元素，而历史悠久的利口酒工厂被视为真正的工业遗产。2009-2018年间，EAA对项目现场的努力主要是以设计一个项目为指导，了解这个独特 “地方 “的潜力，恢复工厂的价值，并将这块土地的相当一部分还给城市和城市居民使用。
The old Liqueur and Cognac Factory and the magnificent garden in front had an important role in Istanbul’s physical and social memory; the garden was a key element in Mecidiyekoy district’s urban texture, and the historic Liqueur Factory was perceived as true industrial heritage. Between 2009 -2018, EAA’s efforts for the project site were primarily guided by the intention to design a project that understands the potential of this unique ‘place’, restores the value of the factory, and gives back a considerable amount of this land to the city and use of city dwellers.
The Mecidiyeköy Liqueur and Cognac Factory was built in the early 1930’s designed by renowned French architect Robert Mallet-Stevens in an empty estate surrounded by Mulberry trees. Displaying the period’s modernist tendencies, the building became rooted in the city’s memory for many years with its horizontal, strong and dramatic mass. Over the years, it had completely lost its essential qualities due to new uses and insensitive interventions it was exposed to during the various periods.
该项目旨在恢复该建筑的独特的建筑特征，强调并保留其外部和内部的结构语言，目的是保持所有这些品质并适应其新的用途。在全面恢复和复原项目的方向上，理想和连贯的方式是根据其原来的建筑设计重建工厂，因为该建筑不再被认为是结构安全的，其原有的品质被破坏。Mecidiyekoy利口酒和干邑工厂于2018年底重新开放，成为Pilevneli Gallery Mecidiyekoy；这是一家当代艺术画廊，将在伊斯坦布尔中心创造一个围绕视觉和表演艺术的社会和文化体验。
The project aimed to restore the unique architectural identity of the building, to emphasize and preserve the structural language in both exteriors and interiors, with the intention of maintaining all these qualities and adapting to its new use. In the direction of full restoration and restitution projects, the ideal and coherent way to proceed was to rebuild the factory according to its original architectural design as the building was no longer deemed structurally safe and its original qualities were destroyed. The Mecidiyekoy Liqueur and Cognac Factory was reopened at the end of 2018 as Pilevneli Gallery Mecidiyekoy; a contemporary arts gallery that will create a social and cultural experience revolving around the visual and performing arts at the center of Istanbul.
2019年2月，EAA举办了题为 “Mecidiyeköy利口酒和干邑工厂作为共和国早期的大胆举动等 “的展览。城市记忆背景下的抱怨”，在Pilevneli Mecidiyeköy举办。展览提出了利口酒厂的演变，从其最早的项目开始，并以原始文件展示了不同团队在这一时期开展的工作，同时试图回答当前的问题。在展览范围内，将伊斯坦布尔人与利口酒厂本身结合起来，还展出了EAA在不同地区开展的各种再利用项目的例子。
In February 2019, EAA held an exhibition titled “Mecidiyeköy Liqueur and Cognac Factory as the Early Republics Daring Move and more: Grumbling in the context of City Memory” at Pilevneli Mecidiyeköy. The exhibition put forward the evolution of the Liqueur Factory beginning from its earliest projects and displayed the work carried out by various teams within this time period with original documents while attempting to answer current questions. Within the scope of the exhibition that united Istanbulites with the Liqueur Factory itself examples of various re-use projects carried out by EAA in different geographies were also exhibited.
